Anti-pop star tiLLie releases "Lose My Mind" about a chaotic and traumatic year
Welcome to the glitter-doused, girl power world of edgy guitars + ear-worm melodies that is tiLLie. After catching the ear of Machine Gun Kelly + Kevin Lyman (creator of the Vans Warped Tour) during a sold out acoustic performance in Los Angeles in December of 2016, the upward spiral of multi-instrumentalist and songwriter tiLLie cannot be stopped. Her infectious songs might seep into your head but this self-proclaimed ‘anti-pop star’ transcends the predisposed boundaries + limits of the genre with her diy + hands-all-over approach. Coinciding with her first tour, a two week stint on Warped Tour, tiLLie independently released 3 singles that went on to be featured in the game Rock Band, played on BBC Radio 1, led to a feature in The Fader, and landed her as one of Alternative Press’ ‘Ten Artist Set to Detonate Your Complacency’.
In 2019, tiLLie dropped the Loud Mouth EP and signed with ICM (US) + Paradigm (INTERNATIONAL) which resulted in a busy year of touring, supporting Fueled by Ramen UK act YONAKA across the UK + Europe, performing on main stage at ALL POINTS EAST FESTIVAL and hitting other festivals such as Slam Dunk in the UK + Summer Fest in Milwaukee. Per the personal request of the artist LIGHTS, tiLLie closed out the year as direct support for her sold out tour across the US and Canada + opened for Soccer Mommy at Arizona State University before buckling down to record her debut album with hit producer ROBOPOP (Marina, Lana Del Rey, Charli XCX).
tiLLie says of the song:
" ‘Lose My Mind’ was written about a year in my life where the universe put me on the most fucked up rollercoaster - one traumatic loop after another. No one around me knew what to do or what to do, and they just kept telling me it would get better soon. It felt like I was on the brink of doing something really bad and losing my last ounce of sanity. Eventually I had to just put my hands up and go along with the chaos of it all because fighting the pain was killing me. Writing this song and getting it off my chest is what pulled me back from the edge. I think it’s important to fully acknowledge your pain in order to transcend it. "
